Flavorful corn chowder with a kick of heat.
I love corn chowder. There are just so many ways to go with corn – and this time I decided to pair corn with a little heat and spice. My favorite grocery store where I live (Harmon’s) has a wonderful meat department, and I love their chorizo. It is spicy but not to hot, rich but not too fatty. I have also made my own chorizo, and it would work well in this chowder. But for the sake of time I used the store bought sausage here.
I love the crunch of the corn in this – cooked just a little so that the kernels retain their pop.
This chowder takes 20 minutes, tops – yet the broth has so much flavor and depth because of the chorizo. And the touch of sweetness from the coconut milk makes a perfect balance.
You will fall in love with this spicy soup – and be sure to have some crusty bread handy for sopping up the broth. Either that or lick your bowl like I did!
